    Really? Seeing SOME action is worse than seeing NO action? I don't mean to be rude, but that makes no sense whatsoever.








    It makes no sense to you because you are a willing participant of what is happening and you have no clue of what they are doing. To put it more bluntly, you’re a useful idiot.



    Currently they are supposedly giving us the same amount of coverage, maybe even more with the small screen. But how long do you think that will last? It’s all about conditioning the patient. Look at how every sporting event is loaded with meaningless advertising and stats at the bottom of the screen. And any channel has the subtle logo somewhere on the screen at all times. You know where this is going.

    I have no issues with commercials if they are not so frequent (say max 10 minutes an hour) and the content in between is of good quality (i.e. not talking heads, commercial plugs and endless 3 foot putts and overhead or leaderboard type shots)

    So basically no US network is ever going to not be an issue with you. That's what sucks about it. because I would be in the same boat as you. If they would show golf, it wouldn't be as bad.



    Thought just popped into my head: are US broadcasts so bad because the networks don't feel much pressure to put a good product since Beman mandated many years ago a sponsor of a tournament buy a large portion of the ad time for that week or throughout the year? Maybe they've been under the impression they are playing with house money, so....

    Here, watch this tiny ash bit of golf while we tell you about some other golf tourney where we will repeat the same idiocy!



    I didn’t tune in to watch a commercial about golf while you pretend to show the actual golf that I tuned in to watch you buffoons!

    I just wish the director would be conscious of what’s on air. Zooming from a crane or the blimp to show if or where Bello’s ball crossed the hazard on 18 was a waste since it was pip.

    real question.... has anyone here bought anything due to a TV commercial since they were 12? I cannot think of a single thing that i have .....TV commercials are so 1984..... we just dont ingest info that way anymore... we ignore them completely..

    I think with marketing in general it is a little more complicated and sinister than we would like to believe. The subconscious is fully aware of these products and marketing schemes and they are embedded and consciously or not we are affected to a large degree. To say it doesn't influence a buying decision is hard to tell at times because the marketing has penetrated our minds. If it didn't at some level these corporations would cut their marketing drastically and rely on the quality/ price of their products to influence sales.

    I DVR all the tournaments. When it goes to “pic/commercial” i can’t hit the FF fast enough.

    It’s the 6th hole in the first round ADIDOS, i’m turning your 4.5 hours of coverage into 3 max.

    Life is to short, got things to do like play golf.

    Golf channel has become the ultimate sellout in minimal actual coverage and all commercials and creating storylines that don’t exist.
